While many of us will be able to comfortably sustain for months at home, there will be millions of people—especially those with limited financial means, senior citizens, the differently abled, etc. — who may find it very difficult to pull through even for a few days without the basic three meals or essential medicines.

While the Government is putting significant effort into making the lives of its citizens comfortable, what can we do to help? Karuna Go 2020 (previously called Silver Plate on Instagram) is a small effort to try to bring together people and do our part in helping feed those most affected during the coronavirus pandemic.

The initial goal was to feed 20 families for a month in around my locality. I am happy to inform you that we’ve met that goal, thanks to your generous contributions. I wish to continue helping other families. I urge you to do your part — contribute generously.
